I loved the small classes and the teachers were excellent at their jobs! Each of them were so nice and cared about getting everyone to understand the course! The other faculty were amazing as well and the principle is outstandingly amazing at her job. AHSTW is where it's at!
Review AHST High School
I love high school here. I have made great friends and had tons of positive experiences. While attending high school, I've been given the opportunity to go above and beyond, not only in the classroom, but also in extracurricular activities. Teachers and coaches give positive encouragement each day, and I am truly blessed to be surrounded by such a caring community.
To be honest, there is only one teacher who I DESPISE, and that is only because she tried to invest herself in my personal life. In my opinion it was HIGHLY unprofessional and I haven't taken a single one of her classes since that situation. It's not like I wouldn't enjoy the classes she teaches, I just wouldn't enjoy her. Honestly I feel a little deprived of that learning experience because of her.
